Southern anvils were ASO cast iron. Most looked like that one in a few hours.

Is that an actual term? like do you refer to a cast iron ASO as a southern anvil? I just never heard of it before.

Southern Crescents were made in Chattanooga sometime after the Civil War, not sure when.  Used to see them in north Georgia. They were basically like a harbor freight version of a fisher norris, even cheaper than a Vulcan; thin steel top, cast iron body. Prone to having big casting voids, lousy rebound, and delamination. Every once in a blue moon you find one in good shape that wasn't made on a Monday or a Friday and it will be terrific, but it's the rare exception, not the rule. Most are in terrible shape.
